Phoenix, AZ —Today, Governor Doug Ducey endorsed John McCain for reelection to the U.S. Senate. The Governor emphasized the importance of John McCain’s leadership for Arizona.
“History will count John McCain as one of the most fearless leaders of our generation and a genuine Arizona hero,” said Governor Ducey. “A man who always puts service above self, John McCain is a revered fighter and a fierce advocate for Arizona.
“Our world is marked by uncertainty and conflict. But John McCain has the experience, character and courage to help keep us safe. As Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, he’s fought to strengthen our military and economy. We can count on him to know and do the right thing always.
“He’s a world statesman, who stands up to our enemies and stands for our values. But he is Arizona’s champion first, fighting for our veterans, our businesses and our families.
“John McCain provides what no one else can: the ability to inspire a generation of leaders to build a future for Arizona even greater than our storied past. His leadership is more important than ever. I wholeheartedly endorse John McCain for the U.S. Senate and I urge every Arizonan to join me.”

“Governor Doug Ducey and I have had the privilege of working with one another to help improve our great state,” said John McCain. “From his time as a business owner to now helping Arizona grow and prosper as the leader of our state, Governor Ducey has been dedicated to Arizona. We are fortunate to have him at the helm as we increase economic opportunity in Arizona, provide all students with access to quality education and protect Arizona families. I admire Governor Ducey’s passion and commitment to our state and for serving the people of Arizona. I am honored to call him a friend and appreciate his support for my reelection.”
Recently, John McCain received the endorsement of former Governors Brewer, Symington and Hull, as well as 56 current and former Arizona mayors.
John McCain has spent his lifetime in unwavering service to America, both in the U.S. Navy and representing the people of Arizona in the U.S. Congress. He has led the fight to strengthen America’s national security and our armed forces, eliminate wasteful government spending, and reform government to make it more responsive to the American people.
